Written for eight vocal soloists and a percussion ensemble of four players, Tongues Swords, Keys explores, in a multi-lingual text devised by Randolph Stow, ideas of coming together and parting - perhaps of tribes, or of nations, or of individuals. At times the work is ritualistic in character. It was written with funding assistance from the Australia Council.
